Chip-multiprocessors are an emerging trend for embedded systems. In this article, we introduce a real-time Java multiprocessor called JopCMP. It is a symmetric shared-memory multiprocessor, and consists of up to eight Java Optimized Processor (JOP) cores, an arbitration control device, and a shared memory. All components are interconnected via a system on(More)
This paper describes the first steps towards a Java multiprocessor system on a single chip for embedded systems. The chip multiprocessing (CMP) system consists of a homogeneous set of processing elements and a shared memory. Each processor core is based on the Java Optimized Processor (JOP). A major challenge in CMP is the shared memory access of multiple(More)
Chip multiprocessing design is an emerging trend for embedded systems. In this paper, we introduce a Java multiprocessor system-on-chip called JopCMP. It is a symmetric shared-memory multiprocessor and consists of up to 8 Java Optimized Processor (JOP) cores, an arbitration control device, and a global shared memory. All components are interconnected with a(More)
In this paper, we propose a first step towards a time predictable computer architecture for single-chip multiprocessing (CMP). CMP is the actual trend in server and desktop systems. CMP is even considered for embedded realtime systems, where worst-case execution time (WCET) estimates are of primary importance. We attack the problem of WCET analysis for(More)
